ADX is partnering with Design Week Portland to produce an incredible week of events! We are excited to present the launch of Portland’s newest museum, an interactive multimedia installation in collaboration with Interhacktive, two full days of youth design and build projects, and the launch of our newest addition, The Bridge, with partner Autodesk.
Join us as we come together to learn, connect, and inspire each other!
Out of the success of Design Museum Boston, founded in 2009, comes the only museum in the Northwest dedicated solely to design. Design Museum Portland is unique in that is has no fixed location. Instead, the museum consists of a decentralized network of physical and virtual exhibits. “Design is everywhere, so are we.”
The museum’s mission is to ”educate the world on the role of design in our lives and to unite the community in ways that enrich our collective work, make businesses more competitive, and solve real-world problems more creatively.” Become a founding member at ADX on Tuesday, Oct. 8 from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM and celebrate design with good food, good drink, and great people!
Wed – Fri, Oct. 9 – 11 : Blurred Lines A Curated Exploration of the Future of Interaction
AIGA Portland is organizing a three-day immersive interactive experience consisting of installations from Portland’s leading design studios. In collaboration with Interhacktive, ADX has contributed an interactive installation incorporating “light, sound, images, motion, culture and history.”
Come experience an incredible collision of technology and interaction at Refuge, Oct. 9 – 11.
Work with your hands on a do-it-together project! Youth in grades 7 – 12 will have the opportunity to learn the design and build process by designing their own “brand” and then using the shop to create something to represent it, such as a small sign or piece of swag to give to friends. Come learn and build with Saturday Academy at ADX on Oct. 11 from 9 AM – 4 PM.
On our second build day, Oct. 12 from 9:30 AM – 4:00 PM at ADX, we’ll be working with Zenger Farms to create new additions to their six acre site. Come work together and learn how to use a MIG welder, bandsaw, laser cutter, and more!
We’re excited to announce the launch of out newest addition, The Bridge, with partner Autodesk. The Bridge is a place where minds meet to design, prototype, and produce together.
With the help of our friends at Autodesk, ADX members will gain access to four industry grade computers running the latest 2D, 3D, and cloud-based design software for digital prototyping, two Makerbot 3D printers, and four Leap Motion controllers (which allow users to design in 3D using nothing but hand gestures!).
Join the ADX community and Autodesk at The Bridge launch party on Oct. 11 from 4 PM – 7 PM to eat, drink, and play with the latest design technology!
